    Probably a bad/loose breaker/buss bar connection that arced.

    But, that is just a guess.

    That's my guess too. I've seen that before, with that being the cause.

    I believe we had a similar photo on another thread recently showing the same thing, looked quite similar ... like it could be the same manufacturer panel.
